Elegent Dining
From wherever you are standing on the High Street in Kilkenny, a few minutes walk will get you to the most famous of all the slips, the Butterslip Lane and to Petronella Restaurant-Cafe.

Over four hundred years ago horse drawn carriages trundled down this thoroughfare. The charming slip with its pretty name is steeped in history and worn with footfall and remains so today.

Duck under the archway and just on the right Petronella has becoming a regular for those who have discovered her.

Facebook and Tripadvisor entries already bear testament to culinary experiences from both near and far.

-Absolutely Amazing Food! -
Having looked at reviews for gluten free restaurants, we decided to try Petronella this evening for dinner. The owner, Frank, greeted us at the door and walked us through our entire evening. His wife has a gluten allergy so he knew what I could eat off the back of his hand. His recommendations and flexibility with the menu made you feel like you were a friend of his for a hundred years! The food was to die for and the gf Christmas Pudding was a great treat! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Petronella to anyone and I look forward to going back.

- Relaxed and friendly with excellent food -
Myself and my husband visited this restaurant during a recent visit to Kilkenny and our whole experience was flawless. We were warmly welcomed and offered a choice of early bird or al la carte. The service was relaxed and friendly, as though you were at an old friends house, but very knowledgeable about their food too. The food matched the service! We enjoyed deep friend brie, and a crab meat starter followed by asian style hake and the special, venison with chocolate sauce. We finished with cheesecake. Everything was flawless and accompanied by a bottle of beautifully smooth malbec. We enjoyed every bite. There was a relaxed mix of couples, families and tourists including vegans for whom there is a decent selection of dishes on the menu. Highly recommended!

- Great place to eat -
This is now my second time visiting this restaurant and I cannot say enough good things about it. Twice we have been welcomed warmly by the lovely owner and he could not have been more pleasant. The restaurant is lovely and cosy and we were seated upstairs. The menu was great and has plenty of options for all dietary requirements. The food was second to none. It was great food cooked fantastically. Have had 3 courses both times and could not fault it either time. The staff were very friendly and helpful and could not have done more for us. My favourite restaurant in Kilkenny and I will definitely be back.
